Fun at the mouse house.

I love to put together a casserole for dinner from whatever is fresh in my fridge.
This one was good and I'll make it again .
2 cups each...broccolli and cooked basmati rice.
1 1/4 c grated carrot
1 1/2 c diced bok choy
3/4 cup salted cashews
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbsp ginger minced
1 1/4 c vegetable broth.
mix in bowl
I added a bit of fresh basil from the garden.
9x11 casserole dish
Bake covered 375 degrees for 45 min.
This makes a nice side dish.

Our daughter, Allie & grand-dog, Forest.
I'm not sure who had more fun out here today.
Although someone, I'll not name him, ran right through my perennial garden heading for the
  Little Red Riding Hood woodlot.
"Grab the beast"
He's such a handsome dog
who  likes to chase things so 
we take him to the field next door to run ...away from my chipmunks and squirrels.

It was a fun morning at the mouse house.

Last bit of play at night.  Lights must be turned off to convince this gal it's bed-time.

  1. The meal looks delicious and healthy. Allie is very pretty! I do remember how playful and destructive our Labs used to be...those big feet and always wanting to chase something. I used to have Impatients growing on the front porch in the summertime and all it took was speaking to one of the Labs and their big heavy wagging tail would swipe the blooms right off the plants. We sure loved them though.

  2. I'm not big on salads, but that one looks wonderful. I could fill up on that alone.

  3. The casserole is right up my alley, simple to make and delicious.
    Allie is a big girl, and I know how full of life those Labradors can be, a bit like a "bull in a china shop" but ooh, so very loyal.
    Your flowers are looking beautiful.

  4. I love bokchoy ... must remember this casserole! Lucky you -- eating out of your garden and the flowers are lovely.

  5. Dogs will be dogs, and cats will look on smugly, lol!

  6. Just a very happy day at the Mouse House!!

  7. Your garden is looking great - it's really come a long way in a short time!!
